WESTFIELD MASSACRE's music boasts heavy, down-tuned and melodic harmonies, while boasting brutal hooks and grooves and is often described as American Modern Metal. With aggressive growls, high soaring vocals melodies, impossibly fast drums, classically-inspired passages and harmonized guitar leads, WESTFIELD MASSACRE aims to make their modern heavy metal accessible to fans of all music genres, something that grabs the audience upon the first listen.

Their album debuted on BILLBOARD HEATSEEKER's at #14.
